About

cropped-photo.jpgI’m an Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Leeds. Before my move to Leeds in 2005, I taught at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. And before that, I did my PhD at Rutgers University. I received my undergraduate degree from Brown University.

I work on a variety of issues in Aesthetics and the Philosophy of Art. Much of my recent work is experimenal in nature. I also do some work in Philosophical Psychology and, recently, on the Philosophy of Food.

I have supervised successful PhD theses on aesthetic disagreement, online philosophy education and the history of aesthetics.

I was born in Queens, New York and grew up in Ashford, Connecticut and Columbia, Maryland. (I also lived in Canberra and Storrs.)  I’m married to Sheryl Meskin who is Progamme Leader for the Interdisciplinary Science Foundation Year at the University of Leeds.  Ethan Meskin is 12 years old.
